Hundreds come out to “Welcome” Walker to Fond du Lac

On Wednesday, more than 200 parents, teachers, public employees and leaders in the Fond du Lac area stood in 95-plus degree heat to “welcome” Gov. Scott Walker with a protest during his visit to help his friend and rubberstamp vote, Randy Hopper. Walker was in town to raise campaign cash for Hopper’s flailing campaign, as he desperately attempts to hang onto a loyal vote for his extreme agenda in Madison.

The fundraiser was at a posh and private country club that tried to keep people away, but that didn’t deter the 200-plus in attendance from making sure both Walker and Hopper knew their extreme agenda and their attacks on middle class families weren’t welcome in Fond du Lac. Braving the heat, standing outside at the entrance, the crowd made sure they were seen and heard by Walker as he drove by into the private, high dollar event.

Not only did the crowd get together to protest Walker, they also came to sign up to help the campaign in the final weeks. Dozens and dozens of volunteers committed to knock on doors and make phone calls in the final push to recall Randy Hopper. On August 9th, these committed activists are going to send Hopper home once and for all.
